Effects of Fiber Geometry and Number Density on the Optical Attenuation by HVI Cotton Test Specimens

K.E. Duckett, Z. Zhou, R.S. Krowicki and P.E. Sasser


Twenty research cottons have been examined for relationships connecting optical attenuation and tapered bundle specimen linear density. Some of the properties of the cotton fiber that affect light transmission are fiber diameter and immaturity, convolution geometry and crimp, as well as fiber fineness distributions. Effects of these properties on bundle linear density determinations by optical methods is examined.
